About Us
Founder of Kensington Smith Design, Kathryn Smith has over 20 years of professional design experience. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles with a degree in Interior Design and is an Allied Member of the American Society of Interior Designers as well as a member of the National Kitchen & Bath Association.

Kathryn brings a broad knowledge of interior design as well as construction means and methods. Her experience ranges from modest homes and commercial office space to big-scale overhaul projects.

Ashleigh Smith, Project Manager/Assistant Designer, was born and raised in Newport Beach and has always had a passion for design. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts Degree from Colgate University in New York, Ashleigh spent time studying and traveling throughout Europe, which inspired her to pursue her love of design. She then attended Interior Designers Institute in Newport Beach.

Here at Kensington Smith Design, our goal is to work closely with our clients to determine and create an environment that is a reflection of their needs - whether it is a single room or an entire large scale project. We believe in open communication as a key to achieving your desired results. We pride ourselves on meeting budgets and scheduling requirements.
